If the port has been broken, there are two ways to go.
1. Fix it yourself - If You havent repaired a mobile phone before or even opened, dont try it. The pins are VERY SMALL and require very steady hand and small tools.
2. Let experts fix it. Just go to repair center and say:"It just stopped charging, don't know whats wrong with it". Dont tell about the pulling and such. With good luck, they repair it for free. If they still ask you to pay, it is usually about 30- 45.

SOURCE: Busted Sidkick 3 Charger Port

Sorry to hear that. The Sidekick 3 is notorious for the charging port getting busted.

If you take it apart, you can see that it is soldered in 5 places to the motherboard. Maybe one of those solder joints came loose.

This link will show you how to take apart your sidekick.

Another option is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They go for about 30 dollars shipped on ebay. This will allow you to charge your battery external from the phone or if you have an extra battery , have one charging at all times.

Check the followinf link to see availability.

SOURCE: my samsung galaxy pro GT-B7510 battery Not getting charged by Charger and only by USB cable and power lossing immediately i remove cable, how can i solve ??

Check the mains power adapter with a multimeter. Plug the adapter into the wall mains socket and then measure the voltage on the adapter plug, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the adapter. If you get a low reading or zero reading the the charging adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

While in browser, open settings (bottom left button) and change display setting. The s3 has separate display settings for browser and general phone. Hope this helps.

Need a new charger port for a samsug galaxy s111


You original Galaxy S3 charger has a cable which is a micro USB at one end and standard USB at the other (both male ends). Then the wall plug part is standard USB (female). You can use any brand replacement to charge your phone.

2. Plugged in your Samsung Galaxy S5 with an original Samsung Mobile charger, but do not turn on your phone. Sometimes it may take little longer to charge the phone. After you phone starts charging, a charging icon should appear on screen. But if you see nothing is appearing on screen, then Samsung Galaxy S5 not charging issue is occurring either for damaged charging cable or there is some problem on your phone such as the charging port is damaged or bent, or the charging contacts on your phone is not cleaned.

3. To check the charger, charge another Samsung phone using the same charger and see if it is charging. If the other phone is charging well, then the charger is fine. Now you should check your phone.

My Samsung galaxy s3 charging port is broken, my screen is also cracked. Will i have to get my screen fixed in order to get my charging port fixed?


No, charging port can be repaired without having the screen replaced, you might want to consider this though, since they are already in there fixing the power connector they might as well fix the screen and save you the disassembley charge next time. Up to you though

My samsung galaxy s3 is not charging


Try changing the USB cable using the same charger, most of the USB cables that comes in the box has 2 pins only, better to change it to one standard USB. If the charging still not going, try to replace the batt with another, then you'll know if it is the batt or the port. The same happened to me. Just replaced the USB cable and charging went back to normal.
